The simulator taught lesions on each principle in regards to supply and demand which helps when making the proper decisions on market shifts either negative or positive. Microeconomics principles help to make the decisions that directly affect your supply and demand goal for the company. Macroeconomics decisions can be forced upon a company because an outside factor such as the government or put a price ceiling on a product or renters payments. This affects the company’s goals while also trying to still maintain your own supply and demand
I feel that I have learned a lot in this course, and understanding these basic principles of microeconomics has changed the way that I view everyday activities and transactions. I have a better understanding of the key concepts that go into decisions we make, whereas before I think I accepted
A corporate form of business enterprise has the following advantages: Legal framework A corporate business enterprise is established under a specific legal framework where laws governing the operations and functioning of the enterprise are outlined. The activities of the enterprise are monitored and therefore such an enterprise is recognized by law. This is important due to the fact that legal suits can be filed by the enterprise within the provisions of the law.
Microeconomics involves supply and demand in an individual market, individual consumer behavior, and externalities arising from production and consumption; while, macroeconomics involves monetary/fiscal policy, reason for inflation and unemployment, and international trade/ globalization.
Supply is the total amount of a specific good that is available to the consumers. The supply of lobsters depends on the ocean temperature and since the ocean temperature is increasing, lobsters may once again come in a couple more weeks earlier than usual. In 2012, this caused the quantity of lobster to increase significantly, thus the supply curve shifted to the right. The shift caused the equilibrium price to decrease and the quantity to increase. On the other hand, if the ocean temperature is too low, then the lobster production rate is lowered. The supply curve will then shift to the left and cause the equilibrium price to increase and the quantity to decrease. The lobsterman cannot control the supply of lobsters since the production depends on the temperature. Another economic topic that came to my mind is the demand of a product. Demand is a consumer’s willingness to pay a price for a specific good. The demand curve would shift to the right if the price of the lobsters decreases due to mass production and vice
For instance, if someone's income grows, then his demand for goods will increase, shifting his demand curve to the right. This will lead to a higher quantity being consumed at a higher price, ceteris paribus. Conversely, there can be a negative effect that shifts the supply curve to the left where a lower quantity is consumed at a lower price, ceteris paribus. This can occur when the price of substitutes falls or consumers begin to lose their taste for the product.

2. Supply and Demand (The Invisible Hand): Additionally, this basis of supply and demand makes it easier to appropriate various goods as either less abundant and more expensive, or more available and cheaper. A student shared a personal example stating: “During the summer, the price of gas was extremely high. It cost me about $35 to fill up my 10 gallon tank. This is because the demand for gas goes up during the summer. Kids are out of school, teachers are on break, and traveling increases. Because there is such a high
ECO/365 WEEK 3 HOMEWORK 1. Sally is considering opening her own beauty salon. She anticipates the following costs/year: Furniture: | $20,000 | Equipment: | $14,000 | Rent: | $12,000 | Coloring products: | $6,000 | Styling products: | $4,000 | Additionally, Sally is withdrawing $34,000 from her savings account that pays 4% interest/year to purchase the furniture and equipment; she will quit her current job that pays $25,000 per year. She expects total revenues from the new business in the first year to be $70,000. Calculate the following:
Activity one: 1.1Explain the importance of the micro-economic environment to business organisations: Microeconomics looks at how individual players in the economy, such as households and firms, interact. It focuses on the impact that their economic choices have on the allocation of scarce resources to meet unlimited demand. These interactions match what one party wants or demands in economic term and what the other gives in exchange (supply). Each time someone buys a chocolate bar from a newsagent or undertakes the morning paper round, there’s an interaction between supply and demand (ESRC).

Nicholas Benyola Professor Mansourian Econ 201- 25 17 May 2012 Microeconomics Research Paper Minimum Wage In the United States, minimum wage has remained at a low number for several years. Minimum wage is defined as the lowest possible income that an employer can legally pay an employee. This ensures that all people are fairly paid and not defrauded by companies or businesses. Minimum wage is considered a price floor and the minimum wage laws determine the lowest price possible that any employer must pay for labor. In an economic model, the quantity of supplied is greater than the quantity demanded and the minimum wage is above equilibrium price and quantity. Minimum wage prevents labor supplied and labor demanded from moving
Reflection on Microeconomics Class Microeconomics is the economic influences that impact at the micro, or firm, rather than macro level. The study of this subject is one that is highly valuable for any studying business with the provision of knowledge that will increase understanding of different influences and support the decision making processes. With the knowledge gained, along with the skills in applying that knowledge developed through class work and exercises for the different modules, there has also been the development of increased confidence, both personal and in the theories, in using the relevant concepts and tools in a practical setting.
If the economy is defined as the institution which facilitates the production, exchange and consumption of goods, then the micro-level economy is that pertaining to individual goods and the factors and behaviours affecting individual products. When these micro level economies come together, they combine to create the (macro) economy. Part of the structure of micro economy is the behaviour of households as one of the economic agents. Alongside firms (producers), their decisions and actions are among the most significant features of the circular flow of income model. Central to the model is the consumption by those households
